Along for the Ride, the first book to be adapted into a feature film, centers on Auden West who becomes an insomniac since her parents divorced. When she spends a summer with her dad and his new family, she also gets a job that introduces her to the world of girls which she missed out on. She also meets Eli, a fellow insomniac who guides her in the "nocturnal world" of their town. The book tells the story of two lonely people who are learning to connect with each other.
This Lullaby is another New York Times Bestseller, about Remy, who has a whole set of rules when it comes to dating and relationships. However, when she meets Dexter, she realizes that these rules don't seem to apply anymore.
Lastly, Once and For All follows wedding planner Louna, a skeptic when it comes to romance. She's determined to avoid meeting potential dates, especially with her busy schedule, but that chances when she needs to work with the client's brother, Ambrose.
